Interesting new book on Mediterranean landscape design
« on: May 28, 2012, 07:29:38 AM »
Louisa Jones, long-standing MGS member and one of the earliest members of this forum, has just published her latest book, full of beautiful colour photographs by Clive Nichols. Clicking on the book's title, Mediterranean Landscape Design: Vernacular Contemporary, will take you straight to the publisher's description.

Hello Mike
This book might certainly be the next one on my wish list... The one she wrote with Bruno Suet (Du jardin au paysage) was so interesting about mediterranean gardening.
Thank you for this information.

I have received my copy and have read the introduction. I appreciate her wordcraft and look forward to absorbing the other chapters, hoping to discover some ideas and information  new to me.

I've been reading it for the past week. It's fascinating.
